Foobar in its latest version can decompress WMAL files without any help right? (it says WMA is supported, so that should include all variations?)

Why don't you download foobar and try it? That'll give you your answer.

The question meant is it a bit perfect conversion to wav or not.

See this thread:

Didn't LA also have the problem with Foobar but does not make it known to the user?

It's important to mention that the LA foobar plugin is buggy and doesn't produce lossless streams!

How do you check the hash of the sound data only again?
